the real day 1

At this point, I'm starting to doubt that I really have a food allergy, but I'm doing this elimination diet anyway. I just want the rash and stomach aches to go away w/out going to a doctor. Plus it makes for some creative eating and really fresh ingredients. Here is yesterday:


Creamed millet!
1/2 c. dry millet cooked with 2 c. water for 20 minutes. Stir in 1/4 c. sugar after 15 minutes. Serve with ground cinnamon and nutmeg, and a little (vegan) maple syrup.


Black beans and kale served with a potato salad. The potato salad was my favorite thing of the day, marinated in red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, rubbed sage and dried dill.


Brown rice and bean patties, fresh spinach and radicchio. A good idea but poorly executed. Phil liked it but I couldn't finish mine.

I'm so sorry about your stomach aches... I have some stomach problems and I feel your pain :-(.
Hang on there with the diet and see if it gets a little better, at least you are detoxing...
But hey, the food looks amazing! kale with black beans! And the marinated potatoes sound like heaven!

what went wrong with the dinner? It actually looks really appetizing. I can also sympathize with your stomach pain--I go through periods where my stomach is fine, and then long periods when my stomach seems to get upset no matter what I eat.
